Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide is one option your dentist may offer to help make you comfortable during certain procedures. Inhaled through a small mask that fits over your nose, nitrous oxide is mixed with oxygen to help you relax. Your dentist will ask you to breathe normally through your nose, and within a few short minutes you should start to feel the effects of the nitrous oxide. You may feel light headed or a tingling in your arms and legs. Some people say their arms and legs feel heavy. Ultimately, you should feel calm and comfortable.

Nitrous oxide is not intended to put you to sleep. You will be able to hear and respond to any requests or directions the dentist may have. This is called “conscious sedation.”

The effects of nitrous oxide wear off soon after the treatment has ended and the mask is removed.

Nitrous Oxide treatment is available for an additional charge.

Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD) or Joint (TMJ)

Many adults suffer from chronic facial pain. Some common symptoms include pain in or around the ear, tenderness of the jaw, clicking or popping noises when opening the mouth, or headaches and neck pain.

Treatment plans for TMD/TMJ are as varied as the patients that present with it. Each patient must be treated differently depending on the uniqueness of their problems and the contributing factors.

Some treatment options include the Occlusal Splint - also called a night guard or the new FDA approved NTI Device are designed to protect the teeth from further wear. The NTI Device is much easier to wear than traditional night guards and is fit to your teeth in only one appointment. It attaches to your front two teeth only and does not allow the posterior teeth to touch at all. This alignment suppresses clenching over ninety per cent, giving the jaw muscles a break. Also, since the teeth are out of contact no wear occurs. The NTI Device has also received FDA clearance as an adjunct for the treatment of medically diagnosed migraine pain These also will reduce the severity of grinding at night and allow the muscles to rest.
